LAS VEGAS—Bartech partnered with INNCOM to give hotels a rooms-control system that controls in-room minibars, as well as various other technologies, using INNCOM’s INNcontrol 3 system.

As an integrated technology partner, Bartech’s automatic minibars can be installed on the existing IT infrastructure of hotels already using INNCOM room controls. INNCOM primarily uses ZigBee wireless communication technology to integrate its systems with a hotel’s on a common network. Bartech offers a choice of standalone ZigBee wireless network, WiFi, coax cable, twisted pair or Ethernet for server communication with its automated minibars.

"We are honored to partner with a trusted name like INNCOM, whose room controls network over 800,000 hotel rooms around the world," said Bartech CEO Mario Agrario in a statement. "The advantages for hotels using Bartech automatic minibars in conjunction with INNcontrol 3 are vast, whether it is a cost savings from the reduction of staff needed and better inventory control, or a more efficient use of resources due to the system's advanced reporting."
